Chiellini hails Juve strength

Juventus didn’t win at Udinese on Wednesday but they still proved a point, says defender Giorgio Chiellini.

The Stadio Friuli encounter ended 0-0 giving the Old Lady the point they needed to join Milan at the top of the table.

“We came here to win and we tried to do so,” the stopper, who was used in a three-man defence, noted.

“We weren’t able to manage it and we often lacked the final ball, but we’re still satisfied with the performance.

“It has been another display of strength. I believe that few teams will come here and play a game like this.”

Udinese had a 100 per cent home record before last night’s encounter, while Juve are still unbeaten this term.

“It gives us pleasure to end 2011 at the top of the table, even if we would have preferred to be up there on our own,” the former Fiorentina man continued.

“Milan remain favourites, but there are many sides in the running.”
